Magic liked him!

...until Magic thought he was spreading rumors that his HIV positive status was from gay sex.

Basically, Isiah was a cheap and dirty player on a cheap and dirty team. He liked to start stuff for Laimbeer and Mahorn to finish. He liked taking cheap shots and throwing elbows. He was the smarmiest guy to play the game. He helped ruin the Knicks. While there he sexually harassed Anucha Browne Sanders. He bought and then bankrupted the CBA, the minor league basketball league that pre-dated the NBA.

He's a shitty dude.

isiah the player was shit-stirrer of the highest order. the other good teams hated the pistons and he was the ringleader of the pistons.

I always felt like there was something broken inside Isiah but I don’t think he’s phony per se... He would be running a team right now if things weren’t quite so crazy with the Knicks

Isiah got to run two different NBA franchises and Bill Laimbeer had to settle for being an all-time great WNBA coach. I think that shows the gap in how much nba people hated them.

As a Flyers' fan, it pains me to realize that the Detroit Pistons are basically the Broadstreet Bullies of the NBA and Isiah Thomas is their Bobby Clarke, a Hall of Fame talent obscured by his personality.
